Washington - Hillary Clinton is calling Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump "un-American."

She says Trump trafficks in "prejudice and paranoia" and says voters can draw their own conclusions about him. She tries to turn Trump's campaign slogan on its head, saying, "You don't make America great again by getting rid of everything that made America great."

Bernie Sanders says voters will "never elect" someone like Trump, pointing out that he has insulted many kinds of people, including African Americans, women and Muslims. He is reminding voters that Trump was part of the "birther" movement to tag President Barack Obama as not American.

Clinton also dismissed questions about whether she'd drop out of the presidential race should her use of a private server while secretary of state result in a federal indictment.

"Oh for goodness and it's not going to happen," she says, responding to a question from moderator Jorge Ramos. "I'm not even answering that question."

Clinton insists she broke no rules by running her State Department email account from a private server located in her New York home, though she now calls the decision "a mistake." The messages were classified by government agencies years after she sent them, she says.

"I did not send or receive any emails marked classified at the time," says Clinton. "What you're talking about retroactive classification."
